Spokane Valley

Finally Friday

It's Friday at the end of my first official week on the Spokane Valley beat - what did I do? Well, I put 140 miles on my little car. I'm a spoiled woman, used to a 10 minute commute and the ability to walk to many of my assignments downtown, so that's a lot of miles for me. 
I met the entire Valley City Council at the meeting I covered on Tuesday. I'm happy to say that everyone was really friendly and helpful.

Among the issues talked about were a ban on truck parking on residential streets and the allocation of funds to social service organizations. That last part made me wonder what resources are available to homeless or domestic violence victims in Spokane Valley? That will make for a story later on. 
I stopped by the Sullivan Bridge Project kickoff last night - see the previous blog update about that.
Today, Friday, I had morning coffee at Galaxy Grind. Super nice people and very good coffee; now I wonder where I'll have morning coffee next week? Suggestions are welcome and it will probably be Wednesday morning.
Finally, I grew this blog from 99 to 112 followers - thank you! Please keep it coming. I hope you all have a great weekend.
